Zain Create have an offer for limited time, if you register before the 1st of april you’ll get KD 5.100 (thats 5 kds and a 100 fils) of credit to download songs off their music store. I went ahead an registered, it was an easy process and I got the promotional 5KDs credited to my Zain Create account. You should all register, there is no need to miss out on this one time deal.

Anyway, I looked around the site, then wanted to download something to try the service out. I went to the top 10 list and found that Fadhel Shaker’s new album is in the #1 spot (Not just that, He is #1 in the top songs, albums, and artists list!) so I went with Fadhel’s new album. I bought the album (10 tracks, each track costs 300fils. You can’t buy the whole album as of now, but it says in the FAQs section that the option will be available soon. It better be). I bought the album and am now listening to 2 of the songs.. the download rate is between 10kbps and 35kbps (I’m using ego 7.2).

I’m listening to Jowa Al Roh right now and the quality is superb. the song is 4:27 long, in MP3 format, 6.2MB, 192 Kbit/s. Obviously good quality. and comes with an ID3 tag with the picture of the album’s cover.

The whole site is very well designed and is easy to use. I love it.. but there is room for improvement. Hear me out if you have a say in this project:

1- I need to be able to tell which song is already downloaded. Like for example as I was downloading Fadhel’s songs, I lost track. There needs to be a sign or a label on the song which has been downloaded so i don’t download it again by mistake.

2- The lack of Mac software is not acceptable.

3- The song sampling is very fast, which I appreciate a lot, but sometimes the play button doesn’t work and I have to refresh a few times before I can start sampling the song.

4- I should be able to download the whole album as a package, coz it was a hassle downloading each track separately. I know it’s coming.. but still, it should be available from the start imo.

5- It says that once I download a song, I should receive an sms immediately, and yet, I downloaded 10 songs, wrote this post and still not a single sms.

I think the service is very good and that Zain did a great job with this whole thing.

Visit Zain Create and get the offer before it expires.


I was sent an email by Zain replying to the 5 points I wrote above. Here is their reply:

1-Noted will work on it you can check your downloads on my create section .

2- Noted will communicate your request if doable.

3- This is related to your browser

4- working on it,, coming soon along with video clips , ringtones & wallpapers .. & non Rotana songs …

5- This is due to the free promotion once you consume your 5 KD , you will get a chargable sms once you purchase a song ( charging is via sms for free songs no sms is sent only a box stating your free purchase ).

Finally , try out the streamed channels of Rotana( Audio & TV ) as well on the website & try to download the mobile application from web its compatible with Nokia & Sony Ericson symbian mobiles ,,, blackberry soon ….

Thanks Alia


Who hasn’t tried the Bahraini halwa and just fell in love with it? I’m guessing none. It’s one of the best arabic sweets around, especially when it’s from AlShuwaiter. It is one of those “must bring some back to my family and friends” whenever we’re in Bahrain. INM took some pictures when he was in Bahrain a couple of weeks ago to share them with you guys. He said that they prepare the halwa infront of you and pack it on demand. The Halwa ranges from KD1.5 to KD3.5, according to it’s kind and the amount of nuts in it.

It looks like the new double faced speed cameras are popping out everywhere we turn, and that the existing cameras will all be switched soon. We’ve compiled a list of the new ones and we’ll be updating the picture above with every new camera added. Help us out guys and let us know if there is if know you know about a new DF camera that isn’t already pointed in the picture above.

Thanks Fawaz



Inspired by Mark’s post, my friend tried it and liked it, so He and I decided to have it this weekend. It was my first time making this McGangBang thingi, and If I had my eyes closed while eating I wouldn’ haven known what the hell I was putting in my mouth.

The sandwich is basically a chicken burger shoved in a double cheeseburger. The process didn’t make a mess, but I can’t say the same about the way it tasted.. coz that was a complete and utter mess, the flavors were all over the place, and it was too big it had my jaw throbbing by the end.

It tasted like 4 buns and ketchup.. won’t have it again.



“Within Gmail Labs, an option now exists under Settings to turn on “Undo Send.” From that point on, whenever an e-mail is sent, an “Undo” link will appear on the send mail confirmation. By clicking that link, the message will be routed back into composition – where the user can then change that “Meeting on Firday” to “Meeting on Friday.”

This feature can’t pull back an e-mail that’s already gone; it just holds your message for five seconds so you have a chance to hit the panic button,” Michael Leggett, user experience designer for Google, wrote on the official Gmail blog. “And don’t worry – if you close Gmail or your browser crashes in those few seconds, we’ll still send your message.”

Pretty useful feature if you ask me and I sure did need it more than once.

Thanks Tariq

We were invited to the premier of the film ‘Journey To Mecca’ showing on IMAX in the Kuwait scientific center. There weren’t a lot of people and the place looked beautiful as usual. (Side talk: I was thinking how it is funny when we want to talk up a place we always say machinnik bilKuwait “it’s like you’re not in Kuwait”.)

Anyway. The movie tells the story of Ibn Batuta and his journey from Tangier, Morocco, to Mecca to do the Haj ritual.

I didn’t know much about Ibn Batuta.. I mean I’ve been to the mall 😛 but didn’t really know anything about the person. Pretty interesting life he must’ve led back then. He Left his family in Morocco to go to Mecca, and returned 30+ years later.. I guess he just couldn’t resist riding passing by China and India on his way back to morocco.

The Journey To Mecca is now showing on IMAX in the scientific center of Kuwait, Gulf Road, Salmiya.

Thanks Hind



Starting from 1st of March Amex/Gulf Bank credit cards holders will be restricted with only the card holder instead of 2 persons per card to enter Kuwait’s Pearl lounge.

So yeah the inevitable have happened. The blackberry slipped, fell and hit the ground. You know there is always this sinking feeling when you drop something shiny and new, and then there is the few moments between the sound of your mobile crashing, and you picking it up with one eye closed dreading the sight you’re about to see.. I hate those moments.

I always take good care of the things I own, be it a mobile, a laptop, a camera or whatever (I’m not like Mishary, I don’t change my mobile every 3 days! I’m loyal to my mobiles and I use them till death do us part 😛 ) But then if something bad happens to one of my things, I just can’t continue caring for it as much anymore. Once a mobile is scratched, I stop treating it with care. And now in this case.. my mobile isn’t just scratched, as you can see, it got a tear on it!

9ar mobile moqawil.. fa if you guys know a place that sells BOLD covers in Kuwait, I’d be thankful. I gotta cover this ugly torn thing.


Yes, Sadly i got this news today from Mcdonald’s, my lovely DQP is no more on the menu 🙁





My friend HKR was looking all around for white tea. He heard much about it, he heard that the white tea is the finest form of teas available and it is also the healthiest. He then finally stumbled across this tea shop in Almuthanna complex.

And you can buy it from 3GGHEAD directly with a price of KD319, i think its a good deal since Amazon UK is selling it around KD360 without Aramex shipping and Customs.

Thanks ANM

People who throw trash out of their car windows disgust me. I think only trash can throw things out like that.



Just found out that Electrozan is selling the BOLD and the new Curve for KD193 & KD187 respectively.



just went to Electrozan, Alghanim, Eureka and called Zain with no luck all of them are out of stock ! and for the Curve it reads only Arabic with no Arabic keyboard.



Just got these pics via email of the latest police car in Qatar.. i think its a concept idea and not for real with this economic crisis 🙂
